Healthcare today is all about teamwork and partnering with patients to achieve exceptional outcomes. From dealing with patients to dealing with team members, understanding the needs of various personality types is an important part of building positive relationships. It can make the difference between spinning wheels in frustrated miscommunications, or reaping the rewards of teamwork, collaboration and patients that feel their healthcare team view them as unique individuals who must be a part of decision making. This module introduces the concept of personality sensitivity and gives examples of how personality-sensitivity training can improve performance, satisfaction and outcomes.


The goal of this continuing education program is to familiarize nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and social workers with the process and results of creating a personality-sensitive workplace. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Explain the relationship between being sensitive to personality preferences and improving interpersonal relationships
  • List examples of how patients and healthcare professionals benefit from personality-sensitive care
  • Describe Hartman’s Color Code theory, detailing the role of motives and the strengths and limitations of its four personality types

It was educational but it doesn't help with resolving conflict unless everyone has taken the course.

This course is very interesting with the way that it is set up and describes the color code. It gives enough information to be observant to other personalities and to explore more indepth personalities and how to manage yourself around them.
